All in the ears of the beholder. To my ears, 68-69 are the most overated years of their history. Would much rather listen to ANYTHING from '70 to '90 than either '68 or especially '69. No Joke!

I agree, even though we are in the minority. That era sounds like pots and pans to me.

To each his/her own, but I'd much rather listen to "pots and pans" than hearing a keyboard sounding like half-filled milk bottles.

At least that's $200 that I will be "saving."

I should have added that I'm probably also in the minority, just on the 68 side.

Though my current "favorite" period is December of 73. A time that makes you wish that Donna had another child or two.

btw: Recently I dl'ed a 1990 show, 9-20 (my b-day), in order to listen to a dark star that receives high marks. Though surprisingly, I have yet to be in the mood to give it a spin.

December '73 fan myself... often go to sleep to Dark Star>Eyes>Stella Blue from 12/6.

But for some reason, I have really been digging Sept. '90 lately, specifically the DP + RT releases, and the New Year's Eve show as well. And I have been a hardline Keith-era guy forever.

Vince was given some super cheesy keyboard sounds to work with, but man...B.M. CHOSE his. Somehow this makes me give Vince a pass. That and his singing doesn't make me want to jump out a window with quite such urgency.

I'm sure I'm in the minority too though.

That's a very good point regarding Vince and his keyboard selection. Even though I've known it, it still didn't stop me from blaming him for it. Until now...THANKS!!!

Ok, I'll give 90-09-20 a listen and return to the day that I turned 40.

Yikes! Well, to each his own... But personally I'll take Dupree's> Mtns of the Moon> Dark Star> Stephen> Eleven over pretty much anything else in their repertoire.
